One of Troop 868's major fundraising events is our annual sale of bedding plants.  The troop sells popular flower and vegetable bedding plants by the flat or half-flat.  We also offer a selection of decorative hanging baskets, potted plants, and planters.

Plants are delivered from a local greenhouse just prior to sale, so customers are assured of receiving fresh, healthy plants (versus smashed, broken, and/or wilted plants often encountered at various retail stores).  The troop offers "nursery quality" plants at well below nursery prices!

By submitting a pre-order with payment in advance of the sale, customers are assured of getting exactly the varieties they want and are able to pick up their plants at their convenience during retail business hours on "Kentucky Derby Weekend" (the first Saturday in May and the traditional end of frost danger in this part of the country).

This means that customers don't have to worry about buying early to get a good selection then keeping their plants alive until time to plant.  They can pick them up, take them home, and immediately plant them!

Best of all, our prices are very competitive.  By eliminating distributor markup, we are able to offer plants of outstanding quality at lower prices than customers will generally pay for comparable quality at a nursery or garden center.  Rather than another "high price, low quality in the name of charity" rip-off, we offer our customers ABSOLUTE TOP QUALITY plants at competitive prices, so they truly get a good deal as they support our unit and help our scouts earn their way to attend summer resident camp.

Our 2014 sale will be held the weekend of May 2~4.  If you live in the Shepherdsville area, please consider purchasing your bedding plants and decorative hanging baskets from us.  We'll truly appreciate your support and we're sure you'll be pleased with your purchase.

Our Order Form for 2014 will be available for downloading via the link below in early January.  The form may be viewed or printed using Acrobat Reader version 4.0 or later.  If you don't have Acrobat Reader installed on your computer, the latest version may be downloaded free from www.adobe.com.
